Will Hiatal Hernia Cause Acid Reflux?

Q:
Will hiatal hernia cause acid reflux?

A:
A hiatal hernia is a condition in which a small part of your stomach bulges through a hole in your diaphragm.

Weak supportive tissues and increased abdominal pressure can contribute to the condition. The hernia itself can play a role in the development of both acid reflux and a chronic form of acid reflux called gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).
